Class 777 Train Update

This news story on the MerseyTravel web site is entitled New Trains Programme Update.

This is the first paragraph.

Merseytravel has confirmed that the phased introduction into service of the new fleet of trains for the Merseyrail network will not begin this year due to ongoing challenges as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As the story is dated the 17th December 2020, the news isn’t as bad as it first appears.

  1. They have quite a few units on Merseyside now and with reduced demand for travel perhaps they can accelerate driver training if the service is thinned out again.
